Sprint Hero Getting 2.1 "First Week of May"
The highly anticipated 2.1 update for the HTC Hero on Sprint’s network has been rumored with various rollout dates for months now. We received an email today from a follower who went straight to the carrier and asked about the 2.1 he was expecting today. According to the representative he spoke with Hero owners should expect an OTA notification starting in the first week of May.
